Well, SURPASS 2012 has come and gone and it was a wonderfully rich experience. Following in the steps of our previous SURPASS programs, this one offered 25 participants, 13-17 years, many opportunities to develop leadership skills in the context of wellness and intentional, positive and FUN community! It’s a really effective formula.
When I conceived of SURPASS, and offered our first program in 2007, I was confident in the approach; after leading this version (with much assistance from SelfDesign Learning Consultants Amber Santos, Jenny Groves and John Krotez), I’m convinced that SURPASS offers young people a chance to connect deeply and meaningfully with peers and adults. In SURPASS there is a blending of many elements from the insights and practices of my mentors Dr. Daniel Siegel, Dr. Lee Pulos and that certainly helps to account for its success.
